Tuesday night was Voices of Venus featuring the incomprable Emily Kwissa. Great show. SHe is very talented and only getting better!

Tonight is Oneness featuring Shauntay Grant and Kevin Matthews. I really want to take it easy and go home… but I also wouldn’t miss that show for anything.

Maybe I can rest on the weekend. A little.

CONTEXT: February, 2009

This piece is a tribute to the people who laid the groundwork for the poetry scene we now enjoy. I performed it once, but this is an all or nothing piece. If I can get the crowd chating and into it, it will be a hit. If not… then no.
